DT Project #2 by Minxy, Featuring:

Kaisercraft Base Coat Collection

Here I am as promised with my second offering using the Base Coat papers.

I opted for a scrapbook layout as I am on a shabby chic kick ATM and felt the papers really lent themselves well to it.
I started by using 'raindrops' prima stencil and gloss gel on the 'weathered' sheet.
When dry I spritzed some 'patina' cosmic shimmer vintage mist all over the page.
I stamped in white stazon using the 'memory' kaisercraft clear stamp randomly over the page.

Next I cut several strips from the 'Distressed' paper and mounted them onto some card to give them a bit more dimension, like little planks of wood. I also used the 'distressed' paper to back small slits I had torn and rolled on the outer edges of the page.

I arranged the mini planks into a frame and stuck in place with stix2 ultra clear tape.
I used some cheap photo corners to hold the pic in place, covering them with some fancy moulded corners I made from clay.

I then set about embellishing the page with other bits from my stash like the 7 Dot studio 'dreamer elements' and prima flowers, oh and some gauze kindly given to me by my teamie Gillian xo
Well that's another piece done.. only 1 more project to see on friday,
Hope you'll be back, Don't forget after leaving a comment for me to leave another HERE for your chance to win the random comment prize.
Till Friday... Stay Inky

Fabulous layout Minxy. Love the 'planks' and the floaty gauze is perfect with these papers. The torn bits on the edges enhance the 'weathered' look so well too. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us on Friday, lol!
